Stephen Myers has created a system for dispensing dog treats remotely from his iPhone as a method for checking up on his dog while he’s away from home. He uses an electronic monitoring system from ioBridge that connects to his Ethernet network, an old CD spindle case, some cardboard and bits of wood, a large syringe plunger, and a webcam. Impressively, there was no programming required. Check out the video after the break.
You can check out more information on the project and his progress at his blog, Cygnet Engineering.
